Gary Waldrom: Here We Come Again | Holt Gallery
8 December 2018 – 17 March 2019
Self taught Waipawa artist, Gary Waldrom looks back on a lifetime of painting. His subjects exude character, whimsy and life – confronting the viewer with their raw humanity. Bathed in the golden glow of his warm palette, they are fully actualised beings located in a shadowy unreality of time and space. These works are arresting in their scale, their capacity for joy, and the tenderness with which the artist creates a world that his subjects, whatever their foibles, can call home.
